im looking at making the switch from console to pc gaming and want to get a pc or laptop that could play skyrim and other such games. dont want to spend any more than $500. is it worth just getting a pc that isnt expensive and upgrading the graphics my self! or getting one with everything all ready to go! and if so , any listings people could recomend!

If you're wanting serious gaming graphics,you'll spend $500 just on the vid card alone.

Forget it. Gaming PCs real gaming PCs, capable of high end graphics are not $500, even the GPU alone would be at least that, usually more.

I have just made the switch from ps3 to pc gaming I it cost me $1500 including a monitor. Purchased proper gaming keyboard and mouse and speaker set so all up it probably cost me close to 2 grand

i didnt say i wanted i pc that can play high end graphics, i just want to able to play games and upgrade everything myself

For that price you would be struggling to finance a decent base to upgrade from. Maybe have a look at the PBtech site, they sell very basic starter cases that have the bare minimum, but can be easily upgraded.
